iPhone 12s, 12s Pro, and 12s Mini: Features, Price, and Possible Release Date

What new features will the iPhone 12s 12s Pro and 12s Mini have? The next Apple iPhone could come with interesting news: new design, better screen, more advanced cameras … There are a lot of features that have already been revealed thanks to rumors and leaks. Here we review the possible characteristics, price, and presentation date.

iPhone 12s or iPhone 13? At the moment it is unknown what will be the name of the new iPhone. Considering that they will maintain the same appearance, but with more advanced features than the current models, they could be called iPhone 12s. Although it would not be strange that Apple named them as iPhone 13.

Design: same look, but with a smaller notch

According to the latest rumors, the iPhone 12s and 12s Pro will not undergo any major design changes. They will keep the materials, as well as the different finishes: matte color frames with a glossy glass back on iPhone 12s models and glossy stainless steel frames with a matte glass back on iPhone 12s Pro and Pro Max. Of course, the position of the cameras on the iPhone 12s and 12s Mini could change.

The next iPhone will continue with a notch on the front to use Face ID. Yes indeed, the notch could be slightly thinner on all models. It is unknown if the frame surrounding the screen will be thinner than the current generation.

As for the colors, The iPhone 12s Pro and 12s Pro Max are expected to arrive in four variants: Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and possibly a red color, the classic Product (RED). The 12s and 12s Mini could arrive in new colors. Specifically, we could see up to 7 new finishes: white, black, blue, orange, green, purple, pink and product (RED).

Screen: same size, but with new features

The four iPhone 12s models are expected this year They will have the same screen size as the current iPhone 12. The iPhone 12s Mini will be the most compact model, with a 5.4-inch OLED screen. on the other hand, the iPhone 12s would have 6.1 inches, like the iPhone 12s Pro. As for the Max model, it is expected to remain at 6.7 inches.

All will feature Super Retina XDR technology, as well as a resolution of up to 1284 by 2778 pixels, as is the case with the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The resolution will vary depending on the size so that they have the same pixel density. Of course, all four versions will feature OLED technology.

The novelty of the screens of the iPhone 12s and 12s Pro would be in the ProMotion technology, which has been present in the iPad Pro for a few years. This means that the next iPhones will have a refresh rate of 120 Hz. At least it’s expected on the iPhone 12s and 12s Pro Max.

In addition to the frequency of the iPad Pro, the iPhone 12s would also inherit a feature of the Apple Watch screen, the LTPO technology. This function can adapt the screen refresh rate to save battery life. In this way, the refresh rate will go down when we are not touching the screen, and it will go up again when we navigate through the interface when playing, etc.

Performance and battery


New iPhone, new chip. This year All iPhone models are expected to include the A15 Bionic chip, which will be more powerful than the current generation and possibly allow new functions related to augmented reality. On the other hand, the A15 Bionic Chip would be able to optimize the battery to be able to have a longer duration, even with the 120 Hz on screen and 5G connectivity.

And speaking of the drums, we do not expect major changes regarding the duration of the current models, which is already very good. However, this does not mean that it improves. Taking into account that the next iPhone will have a 120 Hz screen, which consumes more than a 60 Hz screen, that the battery lasts the same as previous models will already be an achievement.

Regarding the storage configuration, the latest rumors assure that we will see capabilities very similar to that of the iPad Pro. Therefore, All iPhones are expected to start with 128GB of internal memory and Pro models go up to 1TB in capacity.

What about the cameras?

The same number of sensors: double camera on iPhone 12s and 12s Mini and triple camera plus LiDAR scanner on Pro models. The configuration will be the same: wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle camera for iPhone 12s. The Pro models will have these two sensors and a third telephoto camera. Of course, also the LiDAR scanner.

The novelties could be in the luminosity of the sensors. Ming-chi Kuo, a popular analyst who often leaks information about Apple devices, assures what at least the iPhone 12s Pro Max camera will have a brighter lens. The results may be noticeable when taking pictures in low-light conditions. For example, at night.

On the other hand, also we could see changes in the resolution of the cameras and video recording. It is very likely that Apple also includes news in the software. Will we finally see a Pro mode to be able to adjust the ISO, position, etc?

iPhone 12s and 12s Pro: other news we hope to see

  • iOS 15The iPhone 12s, 12s Mini, 12s Pro, and 12s Pro Max will arrive with iOS 15, the next version of the operating system for iPhone. There is already a date for WWDC 2021, where this new version will be announced. It will be next June

  • 5G: of course, 5G will also be present. Possibly with speed improvements.

When they will be available? Price and date of presentation

The company does not typically expand the price of its devices from one generation to the next, so it is expected prices to be the same as what we see on current models. Of course, we must bear in mind that the iPhone 12s would no longer arrive with the 64 GB configuration, but would be available for 128 GB. This is the estimate of the prices on the iPhone 12s and 12s Pro.

  • iPhone 12s mini: 810 – 850 euros.
  • iPhone 12s: 910 – 950 euros.
  • iPhone 12s Pro: 1,160 – 1,200 euros.
  • iPhone 12s Pro Max: 1,260 – 1,300 euros.

As for the release date, Apple usually announces its new iPhone models in the fall. Therefore, we hope that These four new iPhone 12s are announced during September. Possibly at an online event.
